Product Information:

(Berchemia zeyheri) One of the rarest woods in the world, the heartwood varies from light to dark pink and red with lighter shades of cream. Sapwood is light cream to off-white. Difficult to machine, but turns well. Stock is air dried, green by lumber standards, with the ends waxed to deter checking. Source Region: Southern Africa. Some common uses for Pink Ivory include carving, veneers, inlay, knife handles, billiard cues, chessmen, and other turned objects.

  • Ranges in color from a pale brownish pink, to a bright, almost neon pink, to a deep red

  • Pink Ivory can commonly be seen with a curly grain pattern, further enhancing its visual impact

  • Tight, uniform grain

  • Used in applications involving carving or turning

  • Turns and finishes well

  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
